Apocalypse

When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands

I walk treed streets, I watch the sun set
      on this godforsaken mine-camp town
Wake before dawn with a song in my head
      and I have to get it down
If I sing it loud enough will it save my soul
      or will it just make me cry
All I have is this sweet guitar
      and a voice unable to lie

When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands

Tsunami hits the coastline
      Shark-teeth in my gut
and the sociocultural fear: they’re gonna say
      you stupid crazy slut
But Gaia has her gloves off and so do I
      We’re ready to show our strength
Can’t predict what we’re gonna do,
      but we’re abandoning pretence

When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands

If we’re not overwhelmed by the smoke,
      if we don’t burn ourselves to death
Light that joint again and this time let’s inhale
      cos it might be our last breath
Sit beside me, put your face on this breast
      that nothing can surprise
Let me love you ‘til the end of the world
      Just close your weary eyes
Till all that’s left is the secret place
      where your skin touches mine

When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
When the apocalypse comes to town, I wanna be
      holding your hands
